    1882 Liberty Nickel, Struck in Nickel
    Judd-1684, PR65

    1882 5C Liberty Head Five Cents, Judd-1684, Pollock-1886, Low R.6, PR65 NGC. CAC. The obverse is similar to that adopted for the regular issue Liberty nickel in 1883, but the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA has replaced the stars around the periphery. The reverse depicts a large Roman numeral V within a wreath of corn and cotton with E PLURIBUS UNUM at the top. Struck in nickel with a plain edge.

    Judd-1684 closely resembles several other nickel patterns of 1882, but it can be distinguished by its fine dentils and smaller diameter (21 mm vs. 22 mm). The design was also struck in copper (Judd-1685) and aluminum (Judd-1686). Probably a dozen or more examples of Judd-1684 are known to collectors today. The design elements of this delightful Gem are sharply detailed throughout, even on the usual problem areas, such as the ears of corn in the wreath. The surfaces display some streaky golden-tan and lavender toning, with hazy reflectivity in the fields underneath. No mentionable distractions are evident.
